"Thousand Miles" as written by Michael Orabiyi Riley, Tove Nilsson, Ludvig Soderberg and Jacob Jerlstrom....
Too far away to feel you
But I can't forget your skin
Wonder what you're up to
What state of mind you're in
Are you thinking 'bout the last time
Your lips all over me
'Cause I'd play it in a rewind
Where you are I wanna be

Wanna fly to you like birds do
Straight across the world
My body, your hands, ooh
And I'm missing every word
You are mine, yeah you say so
When you call me late nights
But I wonder how should I know
You're in love enough to fight

Fading away, when you're drunk and alone
Can't see my face in your heart anymore
Telling yourself you don't feel like before
And that's when I run

All of these thousand miles
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back
Coming for you babe, I'm coming now
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back

Wrapped around your fingers
Let you dive into my low
You remember all my triggers
The physical and stuff
Back and forth forever
Is it how it's gonna be?
Even when we're not together
Will you stay with me?

Fading away, when you're drunk and alone
Can't see my face in your heart anymore
Telling yourself you don't feel like before
And that's when I run

All of these thousand miles
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back
Coming for you babe, I'm coming now
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles, ooh
All of these, all of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles
And that's when I run
All of these thousand miles
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back
Coming for you babe, I'm coming now
That's when I run
All of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles,
All of these thousand miles
All of these, all of these thousand miles
To get you back
All of these, all of these thousand miles

    My InterpretationBasically she has fallen for someone who she has sex with....but with the element of mystery and passion as well as some romantic connection made through those nights together

    "Too far away to feel you
    But I can't forget your skin
    Wonder what you're up to
    What state of mind you're in"
    (She's lusting after him, his touch and also remembering when they were intimate. She's wondering how he's doing)

    "Are you thinking 'bout the last time
    Your lips all over me
    'Cause I'd play it in a rewind
    Where you are I wanna be"
    (She's wondering wether he's also thinking about the last time they were together intimately just as she is, because she yearns to be next to him)

    "Wanna fly to you like birds do
    Straight across the world
    My body, your hands, ooh
    (She is feigning for him, she desires his touch on her body)
    And I'm missing every word
    You are mine, yeah you say so
    When you call me late nights
    (He tells her he's hers only on the nights he wants to get into her pants)
    But I wonder how should I know
    You're in love enough to fight"
    (It doesn't keep her from thinking of he really is hers, is what they have worth fighting for to him? She wonders)

    "Fading away, when you're drunk and alone
    Can't see my face in your heart anymore
    Telling yourself you don't feel like before
    And that's when I run"
    (He forgets about her when he's all alone and drunk, this hurts her feelings as she's in love with him and desires to be with him)

    "Wrapped around your fingers
    Let you dive into my low
    You remember all my triggers
    The physical and stuff
    Back and forth forever
    Is it how it's gonna be?
    Even when we're not together
    Will you stay with me?"
    (She knows he's got her good, she's allowed him in too deep, he pleases her senses, and it's an endless cycle of listing for each other then him running away from her and her running back to him only to become passionate together for one night, then it's back to their distance, but she always hopes that he'll actually just stay with her)


    This song is very passionate, like those relationships where perhaps two people have sex but one ends up liking the other more and wants something serious but the other doesn't, kind of sad.
